Turris OS 4.0

Oct. 7, 2019

On 5th of October on biggest Czech open source conference, we released an important milestone in our Turris OS development – Turris OS 4.0. This release based on OpenWrt 18.06 spent quite some time in various forms of testing. It completely changes how we make our releases and we are now much closer to the upstream then we’ve ever been. Everything had to be rebuilt from scratch so it was a huge task to move away from the old way of doing stuff and we took the opportunity to get rid of some of the skeletons in our closets.

Because of that, some of the features available in 3.x might still not present in 4.0. But because 4.0 is the new main development branch, it also has some features not present in 3.x like Storage plugin with support for multiple drives and Nextcloud.

It is the system that is already available on Turris MOX and will be available on newly sold Turris Omnia as well. We are still working on automatic migration path from Turris OS 3.x, but we already have a pretty easy way how to reflash your router manually to Turris OS 4.0.

Android app redesign

Dec. 22, 2018

Looking back at our current app, we found out that it wouldn't be that easy to extend and maintain it in the long run. At the same time, we were also facing quite some challenges in the backend part of the app. Originally we used netconf for our applications but that has proven to be more of a hindrance than a help. As the mobile app was facing big redesign already, we decided to go with the long-term maintainable solution and redesign the backend as well.

As we are making various decisions now, , we would like to ask you for feedback. What would you like to have in our new mobile application? What do you think makes the most sense, what is crucial and what is not. We came up with some ideas so we prepared poll from those, but you can enter some ideas of your own. Later on, we will evaluate that, publish the outcome and develop a new application that will be much better than the current one.

Send feedback via survey here.

Big new features in Turris OS 3.10

May 21, 2018

We are coming to you with great news about the just-released Turris OS 3.10, which is available as part of the automatic updates of Turris 1.x and Turris Omnia routers.

Cloud Backups – keep your configuration safe!

A second exciting new feature is the option to easily save your router’s configuration to our servers. Sure, you could also make a local backup using Schnapps, but thanks to Cloud backups you can now safely back up to our servers and restore any time you need to without having to search your computer for configuration files. As with Pakon, you can install and start using Cloud Backups inside the Foris user interface. Everything is, of course, encrypted and we cannot access your data – an emphasis on your privacy is our unshakable habit. You just need to be careful about one thing and that is not to forget the password. Without it, not even you will be able to access your backups.

Storage plugin - set a safe storage space with just one click!

And finally, our third novelty is the Storage plugin. This service takes care of moving data from the eMMC flash memory, which is susceptible to frequent writing and …
